JJ Peters, DEEZ NUTS
Ready To Die by Notorious B.I.G. That’s a real influential album. Biggie would be the soundtrack to my teenage years, wilding out and partying.
Will Gould, CREEPER
Station To Station by David Bowie. It takes me back to car journeys, being on the train all of the time. I never learned to drive—even now—so I’m constantly on public transport.
Liam Cormier, CANCER BATS
Punk In Drublic by NOFX. It reminds me of high school, skateboarding, being a shithead kid.
Collin Walsh, GRAYSCALE
Take Off Your Pants And Jacket by blink-182 because that’s what I listened to heavily. It reminds me of getting my driver’s license and talking to girls for the first time—all that young shit!
Tony Foresta, MUNICIPAL WASTE
Check Your Head by the Beastie Boys. It reminds me of my high school; me and all my shitty friends used to hang out and party to that album all the time. We’d get drunk and rap. I could rap Beastie Boys songs all day.
Lawrence “Loz” Taylor, WHILE SHE SLEEPS
Slipknot by Slipknot. I still think it’s as good now as it was then. There’s nothing like it. It reminds me of being in school and getting into a completely different thing than I was into before; finding the heavy side of music and learning about other bands. That was the first CD I bought.
Matt Caughthran, THE BRONX
The Crew by 7 Seconds. That was the record that launched a lot of the punk-rock stuff for me, and it was the opening to my rebellion, so to speak.
Rob Damiani, DON BROCO
Jimmy Eat World’s Bleed American. That album was three summers worth of being a teenager growing up. I’ve got so many good memories attached to that record.
